    How to connect:iMac(2010), project mix i/o, external hardrive?
    I just purchased a 27" iMac w/only 1 FW 800 port. I also have an external hardrive, and an M Audio Project Mix i/o console. How the heck am I supposed to connect all three when my Computer only has one firewire port? Thanks in advance!... -jAv javrock.com

    Firewire hubs exist and it may be your best solution, that said what model External Hard drive? Does it have two 800 ports for daisy chaining? Here's a pro grade FW Hub / Repeater, you may be able to find them cheaper elsewhere.[url]http://www.nitroav.com/store/nitroav-8-port-firewire-800-1394b-professional-hub-and-repeater.html[/url]

    Dear, Very Nice to read this information. Maybe you can help me with my problem. I also have an Imac 22" and use the ProjectMix I/O with Pro tools 10. Now I want to expand to 16 channels with the presonus firestudio 26/26 & digimax fs 8 equipment but don't know haw to get it connected and working. I do have a Firewire hub 1 to 3 ports! Before I decide to buy the Presonus Firestudio and FS i need to be sure of it works well.
